Barghest is a Baton Rouge, LA based band who formed in early 2014, from the looks of things.  Barghest play a dark, filthy, ominous, and oppressive sounding style of music that incorporates elements of black metal, doom, and sludge within their sound.  Musically, Barghest can be loosely compared to bands such as Yellow Eyes, Churchburn, Thou, and Altar Of Plagues.  Since forming in 2014, Barghest have released a three song 12" titled Into Weeping Firmament, a split 10" with Thou, and a split with False.  The Virtuous Purge is Barghest's debut full-length LP, which was released via Gilead Media records on July 11th, 2014.  On The Virtuous Purge, Barghest offer up seven tracks of raw, filthy, and abrasive sounding black metal, doom, and sludge.  Overall, The Virtuous Purge is a killer LP and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
